JetBlue Airways has announced its intent to serve Grand Cayman in the Cayman Islands, the largest destination in the British Overseas Territory’s archipelago.
Beginning Nov. 15, 2012, the airline will serve Owen Roberts International Airport (GCM) with three times weekly service on Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays from New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) and Saturday service from Boston’s Logan International Airport (BOS) beginning on Nov. 17, 2012. Flights are expected to go on sale later this month.
Destinations in Latin America and the Caribbean now make up almost one-third of the carrier’s route network. Grand Cayman will be JetBlue’s 74th destination and the 23rd destination in the Caribbean. Earlier this month, JetBlue also announced intent to serve two other new Caribbean destinations: Cartagena, Colombia beginning Nov. 2, 2012 and Samana, Dominican Republic starting Nov. 14, 2012, both from New York’s JFK (a).
“Our Latin America and Caribbean destinations continue to flourish and based on this support that we continue to receive from our customers, we are excited to add the beautiful Cayman Islands to our growing network,” said John Checketts, director of route planning for JetBlue. “Whether travellers are seeking relaxation or adventure, attractions like Seven Mile Beach, swimming with stingrays, snorkelling or scuba diving are just a few options to explore in this tropical, aquatic playground.”
